60 enteric-coated capsules: Cutting Edge Herbal | Item Catalogue Number: 00605
Regimint is an enteric-coated peppermint and caraway oil combination that has been used as a successful digestive aid. This combination acts locally to relax the smooth muscle of the intestines and has a calming effect on the digestive system. The enteric coating allows the oil to bypass digestion in the stomach where the acid environment would otherwise destroy the active ingredient. Regimint supports gastrointestinal tract function and motility.
The combination of peppermint oil – caraway oil for the safe long-term management of IBS and SIBO related to irritable bowel syndrome. Symptoms include – abdominal pain or spasms, gas or bloating, diarrhoea or constipation, urgent “bowel movement” following a meal and burping to relieve gas and pressure. Peppermint & caraway oil, are the active ingredients in Regimint, it’s been clinically tested to show an overall effective rate of 95% for patients with (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome.
Regimint may work due to the enteric-coating which allows the capsule to dissolve in the colon instead of the stomach. The coating helps prevent gastric reflux which can be associated with peppermint consumption and also allows the peppermint/caraway oil to act locally where it is needed: in the colon. When it is delivered into the colon by enteric-coated capsules, the peppermint/caraway oil appears to have the ability to relax intestinal smooth muscle. It may do this by blocking the influx of calcium into the smooth muscle cells, thus stopping excessive muscle contractions and restoring proper muscle tone. Calcium is one of many things that seems to regulate muscle contractions in the intestinal tract.
The gastrointestinal tract is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body. The digestive system includes the following organs: the mouth and salivary glands, stomach, the small and large intestines, colon, liver, pancreas, and the gallbladder. The gastrointestinal tract is not a passive system; rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that are passed through it. For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that match their gastrointestinal tract capacity.
